Kcc LogoThe second annual Kids Comic Con is taking place this weekend at the Bronx Community College:

2) a huge variety of kids’ comics’ exhibitions, workshops, panels, and signings, aimed at kids, parents, and educators.

All in one day, March 29, 2008, from 10 AM to 6 PM!

Artists on hand include Kyle Baker, Raina Telgemeier, Dave Roman, Kevin Pyle and many more. Check it out!


  1. I got there late and apparently missed most of the fun (at any rate, I missed the panels I wanted to peek in on). But I did get in some time meeting other professionals, self-published artists with brilliant marketing ideas, and had a chance to talk with nice folks like Gina Gagliano from First Second and Jim Salicrup from Papercutz & MoCCA, who wowed me with a look at Papercutz’s Classics Illustrated edition of The Wind in the Willows ( ::jealous:: ). I wasn’t really seeing the energy of the event from my narrow perspective, so it’s great to hear that kids had a nice experience there, or came away from the event with a positive feeling about comics. I’d like to get more involved in 2009.

    NaniTales Debut A Success At Kids Comic Con 2008

    March 29th — Crazee Comics Founder, Samuel Vera made an appearance at the 2nd Annual Kids Comic Con to promote his newest endeavor “Nani-Tales”. This is the first in a series of children’s books by Mr. Vera and a first at the KCC. The series not only attracted the attention of the children at the event, it also caught the interest of the media. The event became a huge success with regard to press as News12 Network, Cablevisions Neighborhood Journal and a Family oriented magazine conducted interviews of Samuel Vera.

    The anxiety leading up to this event was enormous and nothing could prepare me for the amount of attention my company and book received. I hope to see more events for children like Kids Comic Con and will continue to put out product for children and all age readers. – Samuel Vera Crazee Comics Media
